PLAINVILLE — Engineering students at the University of Connecticut will reap the benefits of the General Electric Co.’s (GE) continued partnership with the school, to the tune of $7.5 million.

GE is launching a five-year initiative with the school in a move the company hopes will set a precedent for establishing relationships with other schools.

Of the $7.5 million from GE, $1.5 million will be used as an endowment for a GE professorship in the UConn School of Engineering; $2.7 million will go toward graduate and undergraduate scholarships for engineering students; and $3.3 million will benefit there researching in materials, manufacturing and advanced circuit breaker technologies.

The programs are launched by GE’s Industrial Solutions division, which makes devices used to control and protect the distribution of electricity.

So far unspecified is a part of the cheap tramadol that has GE involved in the state-funded, as-yet-under-construction UConn Technology Park. Connecticut lawmakers recently allocated $172 million for the development of order ativan 125,000-square-foot facility.
